Audience Programming Fundamentals Course

Course Programming Fundamentals This course is designed for individuals who want to learn the principles of programming and to apply their programming knowledge in any language on any platform.

Prerequisites Course Programming Fundamentals

To participate in this course no specific prior knowledge is required. General knowledge of and experience with computers is desirable.

Realization Training Programming Fundamentals

The theory is discussed on the basis of presentation slides. Demos are used to clarify the concepts. The C language is used as an example language. The theory is interspersed with exercises in which participants solve simple programming problems.

Contents Course Programming Fundamentals

In the course Programming Fundamentals the basic principles of programming will discussed on the basis of the language C. The language is not central in this course but you simply need a language to program in. The course can also, if so desired, be given in another programming language. Most important is the methodology of structured programming. Simple problems are analyzed and converted into instructions in the programming language. Participants learn to formulate a problem in Nassi Schneiderman diagrams and Data Flow diagrams. Attention is paid to write programs in source code and translating this code with compiler and linker to executable binary code. The participants also learn about statements, operators, variables, constants and data types and control flow constructs such as branching with if, then, else, select, case and iterations like while, for, do while, break and continue. Re-use of code is addressed in the treatment of functions. Both calling functions from the standard library and writing your own functions is discussed. The difference between call by value and call by reference is explained. Finally pointers which can address memory and which can be used to walk through memory are on the course schedule. After completing the course, participants will be able to write small programs in C and solve small programming problems. They will not be aware of all the ins and outs of the C language because that is not the purpose of this course.
